Narrator Davina Porter Makes the Book

The story is enjoyable if you are looking for an easy listen. It is very predictable and doesn't fill out the characters but then again it is a very short story.

I only found this book because I was looking for something narrated by Davina Porter. I love this genre but prefer much longer books that take the time to deveolp the story & and characters. I decided to listen to because of narrators merits--and wasn't disappointed by her performance.

I must take exception to the review criticizing Porter's narration, Reviewer: Bronwyn appears to be in the Minority--not one person finds the opinion helpful. Porter is by far and away one of the MOST Talented Narrators!!!!

Fun Characters, Great Narration

Which character – as performed by Davina Porter – was your favorite?

Davina Porter does an excellent job of making the story come alive. Her changes in voice for the male and female characters are subtle and nuanced but distinguishable.
